Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) is only in the Alpha stage of testing at this moment. It doesn’t look extremely different from the current version of Ubuntu but there are a few noticeable differences.

"I installed Lucid Lynx using VirtualBox OSE. Before I installed, I booted up from the LiveCD just to get a look at it to see if anything looked different.

"It only took around 20 minutes to install on a virtual machine with just over 700 MB of RAM and a 2.16 GHz processor.

The first things I checked were the applications."
